India-Pak tie claims 3 lives in UP

Unable to withstand the joy after Team India’s victory, a youth collapsed and died reportedly of cardiac arrest in Daliganj locality in Lucknow late on Wednesday night, according police sources here.

The youth identified as Vipin Kumar, who watching the match in his house, burst with joy when Misba-ul-Haq was caught in the deep, his mother Ranjana Devi said on Thursday.

“India jeet gayi (India has won), Vipin cried and then suddenly collapsed...he could not move his hands,” his mother said, adding he was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced brought dead.

Overflowing emotions

While Vipin could not withstand the victory, a youth in UP’s Jalaun district allegedly committed suicide after Virender Sehwag was bowled out by Wahab Riyaz, according to reports.

“He was shocked when Sehwag got out and hanged himself immediately thereafter,” reports said.

Another youth in Baharaich district was killed after coming into contact with a live wire while trying to take power from the overhead high tension wires to power his TV set to watch the encounter.

While millions of cricket fans were disappointed when Sachin Tendulkar failed to complete his one hundredth hundred, one of his fans, allegedly consumed poison. Suresh Singh, 18, a resident of Barabanki town, consumed some poisonous substance and is battling for life at a hospital.
